Jalapeño garlic popcorn

Recipe cooking time
Serves 4


  1. Heat three tablespoons of the ghee in a large pot over a medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover tightly with a lid.

  2. As soon as the kernels start popping, use oven gloves to lift and shake the pot every few seconds until all the kernels have popped. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.

  3. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining ghee over a medium-low heat. Cook the garlic and jalapeño for 1-2 minutes until softened, allowing the flavours to combine. Drizzle the jalapeño garlic ghee over the popcorn.

  4. Season to taste with sea salt and a little cayenne pepper, if desired. Stir the popcorn well to distribute the ghee and spices evenly.
